Tire Casing Credits

Get credit for your used tires.

Did you know that your used truck tires may still have value? Trained TA Truck Service technicians can inspect and grade your used tire casings at any of our more than 244 facilities. Casings will be classified by category to determine the value, and any credits earned towards your next tire purchase will appear on your work order.
